Description

Eclogite is a coarse-grained mafic metamorphic rock. Eclogite is of special interest for at least two reasons. First, it forms at pressures greater than those typical of the crust of the Earth. Second, being unusually dense rock, eclogite can play an important role in driving convection within the solid Earth. The fresh rock can be striking in appearance, with red to pink garnet in a green matrix of sodium-rich pyroxene. Accessory minerals include kyanite, rutile, quartz, lawsonite, coesite, amphibole, phengite, paragonite, zoisite, dolomite, corundum, and, rarely, diamond. Plagioclase is not stable in eclogites. Glaucophane and titanite form in eclogite as pressures decrease during exhumation of the rocks, or may be earlier formed minerals that did not entirely react away.
